Is there anybody familiar with simulation of a layout extracted from cadence in hfss. Is there any voltage pulse generator source in hfss that we can use it with lumped port?
Any comment is appreciated,

I was wondering if there is a tool/methodology that converts Magic layout to cadence layout. What happened is my group has a chip layout design in Magic and we want to fabricate it. Since the layout is quite large, we are trying to see if there is a simple way to convert Magic (...)

I'd like to stream out in cadence layout selected nets containing all the attached polygons or, at least, the metal layers composing such nets.

From L-Edit, export your design in GDS2 format, then stream in the GDS data into Virtuoso.
Please make sure that the GDS layers between Tanner and cadence are the same.

Maybe your version lost few librarys. You can copy these librarys at another person also have cadence. Or you can use L-edit (Tanner EDA) to draw layout(Tanner have version 7.12 for student,you can download free)!

If you just want a example for a start, you can copy from the cadence installation directory.
Maybe you need other tools for DRC. Diva is not so powerful and efficient for 0.25um technology.
